Community-Led Total Sanitation is key to addressing open defecation in communities
The KKP approach used to improve Rumba and other communities in selected areas within the 3 districts in Central Bougainville is the Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) component of the project. CLTS is a pioneering approach for mobilising communities to completely eliminate open defecation (OD). The approach uses participatory processes, including community mapping and transect walks, to facilitate communities to analyse their own sanitation practices and faecal-oral pathways. During a process called triggering, communities come to the realisation that they may be consuming their own waste (feces – through the use of unsafe drinking water and other ways) and start taking action to become open defecation free (ODF).
